This course surveys the artistic, architectural, and other material remains from the Greek world between the 10th and 4th centuries BCE. Major themes include the rise of the city-state, the relationship between politics and art, the representation of the body, and the material evidence for religious worship. We will for the most part proceed chronologically, with special sessions devoted to topics such as the symposium, healing cult, and archaeology in popular media. There are no prerequisites, although previous coursework in Classics and/or art history is helpful.
